Awards and Recognition
Oxi Fresh is an award-winning carpet cleaning franchise because of our rapid growth, our environmentally friendly products, and our superior customer service. From the moment we opened our first franchise in 2006, we’ve been catching the attention of industry experts.
Forbes is an institution. For over a century, it has offered sound advice to businesses and entrepreneurs, sharing proven ideas and highlighting new and important trends in the worlds of financing, marketing, and investment.
Forbes has also turned its focus to franchising, an industry that employs over nine million Americans and accounts for $552 billion of the United States’ GDP. After studying years of information from the industry watcher FRANData and carefully analyzing hundreds of franchise systems, Forbes created a list of the Best and Worst Franchise Systems in America, grouped by entry costs of up to $150,000, between $150,001 – $500,000, and over $500,000.
America’s Best and Worst Franchises: #3 Best Franchise to Buy
In 2014, Oxi Fresh was named the #3 best franchise to buy in America among franchise systems with an entry cost of up to $150,000. Everyone at Oxi Fresh is proud of this amazing achievement, especially since we’re the only carpet cleaning franchise company on any of the Forbes “Best of” lists!
Franchise Business Review
The Franchise Business Review (FBR) is a highly respected source of independent franchise information because it highlights the top franchise opportunities in the marketplace based exclusively on ratings and reviews from actual franchisees. The FBR gives franchisees the opportunity to express their frustration or satisfaction with their franchisor and then gathers this data into a large report for the public.
That might intimidate some franchising companies, but not Oxi Fresh. We welcome the inquiry and the results from our carpet cleaning franchisees. It only makes us more committed to our owners’ success.
After all, our goal has always been to give our franchisees the tools, programs, and support systems that they need to pursue growth. We’re constantly investing time and resources into developing new tools and improving existing ones. By doing this, we’re able to provide options like automatic postcard mailers, email marketing, online training courses, a fully-fleshed out CRM, and much more.
This commitment has been recognized by our franchisees, who have ranked us highly ten times since 2008. By placing ten times in the Franchisee Satisfaction Awards, we’ve also earned a spot in the Franchise Hall of Fame. It’s extremely challenging to do this, and the team at Oxi Fresh is proud they’ve made their franchisee happy enough to garner such an esteemed position.
Franchise Hall of Fame Member
Oxi Fresh is proud to have ranked in the Franchisee Satisfaction Award for ten years. We will continue to work hard for our franchisees to ensure that we always deserve a spot among these other prestigious brands.

Oxi Fresh wants its carpet cleaning franchisees to succeed – it’s our number one goal. It’s why we devote our time and efforts to creating new tools, developing marketing solutions, and consulting with our owners on an individual level. We know that they’re the life of Oxi Fresh, and we believe our FBR rankings prove our commitment to that ideal.
